UNUSUAL FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARDS:  Vapors may form explosive mixture with   
air.  Vapors can travel to a source of ignition and flash back.  Extremely    
Flammable.  Material will readily ignite at room temperatures in the presence 
of an ignition source.  "Empty" containers retain product residue (liquid     
and/or vapor) and can be dangerous.  DO NOT PRESSURIZE, CUT , WELD, BRAZE,    
SOLDER, DRILL, GRIND, OR EXPOSE SUCH CONTAINERS TO HEAT, FLAME, SPARKS, STATIC
ELECTRICITY, OR OTHER SOURCES OF IGNITION; THEY MAY EXPLODE AND CAUSE INJURY  
OR DEATH. Contents under pressure. Containers may explode if exposed to high  
temperatures.                                                                 
                                                                              
SPECIAL FIREFIGHTING PROCEDURES:  Containers can build up pressure if exposed 
to heat (fire).  As in any fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus      
pressure-demand.  (MSHA/NIOSH approved or equivalent) and full protective     
gear.  Keep containers and surroundings cool with water spray.   Beware of    
vapors accumulating to form explosive concentrations.  Vapors can accumulate  
in low areas.

STEPS TO BE TAKEN IN CASE MATERIAL IS RELEASED OR SPILLED:  Use recommended   
personal protective equipment.  Absorb spill with inert material (e.g. dry    
sand or earth), then place in a chemical waste container.  Avoid runoff into  
storm sewers and ditches which lead to waterways.  Do not flush into surface  
water or sanitary sewer system.

ENGINEERING CONTROLS:  Local exhaust ventilation may be necessary to control  
any air contaminants to within their TLV's during the use of this product.    
Use explosion-proof ventilation equipment.                                    
                                                                              
RESPIRATORY PROTECTION:  A NIOSH/MSHA approved air purifying respirator with  
an organic vapor cartridge or canister may be permissible under certain       
circumstances where airborne concentrations are expected to exceed exposure   
limits.  Protection provided by air purifying respirators is limited.  Use a  
positive pressure air supplied respirator if there is any potential for an    
uncontrolled release, exposure levels are not known, or any other             
circumstances where air purifying respirators may not provide adequate        
protection.  A respiratory protection program that meets OSHA 1910.134 and    
ANSI Z88.2 requirements must be followed whenever workplace conditions warrant
a respirator's use.                                                           
                                                                              
SKIN PROTECTION:  Impervious gloves should be used.
